Atlantic Christian College has a large place to fill in the educa- 
tional life of the Carolinas. If the College is to fill that place ade- 
quately, there is imperative need of an endowment. Herein lies a 
clear opportunity for the giving of money that will do great good, 
not only to the present generation of young people, but the genera- 
tions that are to come. The College now needs a new plant to 
adequately represent the people who own and control it, and to 
adequately do the work expected of it. In view of these needs, any 
bona fide gift in personal property, or real estate, is acceptable to 
the Institution. We insert here a form of bequest, which may be 
used as a paragraph in any will. Address the President for any 
additional information required. 


North Carolina, County 


of the county and State aforesaid, being of sound mind, do make and 
declare this my last will and testament: 

Item first 

Item second 

Item third. I give, devise and bequeath unto the Atlantic Chris- 
tian College (Inc.), of Wilson, North Carolina (here describe what- 
ever is given to said College) 

in fee, absolutely and forever. 

Atlantic Christian College 


Wilson, the seat of Atlantic Christian College, is ideally 
located for a college town. The main lines of two railway 
systems pass through it. The Atlantic Coast Line, running 
north and south, makes splendid connection with all the 
branches of that system. The Xorfolk Southern, running east 
and west, makes easy access possible from these directions. 
"With about twenty passenger trains passing through it each 
day and every train stopping, students are never far from home 
when at Atlantic Christian College. 

The environment of "Wilson is as advantageous as its accessi- 
bility. "Wilson is a beautiful city, with good walks, electric 
lights, filtered water, successful sewerage system, and good 
health record. In the center of a prosperous farming section, 
it is a great cotton market, the largest exclusive loose leaf bright 
tobacco market in the world. Its citizens are hospitable, 
courteous and cordial. Its churches, representing the leading 
denominations, have handsome edifices of worship and are in 
a flourishing condition. 

In a thriving town of about twelve thousand population, 
having most of the advantages of a larger city, you are not 
lost and unknown in the multitude. We are able to keep track 
of our students. They are known to the people of the town, 
and it is not long before those of real worth are recognized. 
In such a center of religious, political and business influence 
our students come in contact with some of the greatest preachers, 
doctors, lawyers and business men of the State, and such oppor- 
tunities are not to be undervalued. 


10 Atlantic Christian College 


The fifty-seventh North Carolina Christian Missionary Con- 
vention met at Kinston, 1ST. C, October 3*0 to November 2, 1901. 
The Committee on Education, consisting of D. W. Davis, B. H. 
Melton, W. J. Crumpler, E. A. Moye, and Dr. H. D. Harper, 
made a favorable report for the purchase of Kinsey Seminary, 
in Wilson, JST. C, from the Wilson Educational Association. 
According to the report of this committee, which was duly 
adopted, the Board of Managers of the 1ST. C. C. M. 0. were 
to act as agents of the Convention in acquiring this college 
property, and were to appoint four trustees to have immediate 
supervision of college. The institution was named Atlantic 
Christian College and incorporated May 1, 1902. Mr. George 
Hackney, of Wilson, 1ST. C, was made Treasurer of the College, 
and about $4,000 was contributed the first year. The building 
was taxed to its utmost capacity with students at the college 
opening in September, 1902. The college property was bonded 
for the original indebtedness of about $11,000 in 1902, which 
was fully paid in 1911. The payment of this' debt made acces- 
sible the "W. 1ST. and Orpah Hackney Memorial Fund," which 
was bequeathed "for the education of worthy young men and 
women," and which consisted of real estate in Wilson to the 
value of about $3,000. In 1911 there was built a modern brick 
dormitory for men, on the campus, at an expense of about 
$15,000. In 1914 there was acquired a 672-acre farm in Onslow 
County, two miles south of Jacksonville, 1ST. C. The Carolina 
Enlargement Campaign in the summer of 1920 yielded the 
college for endowment in cash and good pledges, $156,677.70. 

The following have presided over the institution: J. C. 
Coggins, 1902-1904; J. J. Harper, 1904-1907; J. C. Caldwell, 
1907-1916; K. A. Smith, 1916-1920; H. S. Hilley, 1920—. 

Grounds and Buildings 

The college is located in a quiet section in the northern 
part of Wilson. The campus occupies a large city block of 
about six acres. The two main buildings are substantial brick 

General Information 11 

structures. They are thoroughly modern in every respect, 
heated throughout by steam, lighted by electricity. Modern 
plumbing and adequate bath facilities contribute to health and 
comfort. The furnishings will compare favorably with the 
best of similar institutions. 

Co-Educational Policy 

The institution is co-educational. The supervision is so 
close and vital, however, that we feel all objectionable features 
have been practically eliminated. 

In the dormitory for young women the lady teachers reside 
on the same floor with the young ladies. The oversight and 
care is substantially as exclusive as in institutions for women 

The young men have their own exclusive dormitory and 
society hall. A small athletic field with tennis and basket- 
ball courts furnishes adequate opportunity for recreation and 
sport in the open air, which in this climate is possible almost 
every day in the year. Several men of the faculty, with their 
wives, reside in the boys' dormitory. Thus we endeavor to secure 
such results by close supervision and care as will beget the best 
in study and in character training. 

Religious Culture 

Frequently young people going from home to college advance 
mentally, but retrograde morally. We endeavor to make this 
impossible at Atlantic Christian College. We care for character 
as well as intellect. We keep our students in a good moral 
atmosphere, throwing about them proper restraints and safe- 
guards, and giving them counsel. 

Every morning the students and professors assemble in the 
college auditorium for chapel exercises. The services are con- 
ducted by members of the faculty and visiting ministers of 
the Gospel. Brief addresses and lectures are given on religion, 
morals, good manners, temperance, the choosing of professions 
and vocations in life, etc. Visitors are always welcome. 

Students are required to attend Sunday School and church 
service at some church each Lord's Day. 

12 Atlantic Christian College 

The young men and young women maintain their own special 
prayer meetings in each, of the buildings. These meetings do 
much to develop the devotional spirit and the power to express 
publicly their devotions. 

The religious interests and welfare of the students are fos- 
tered by a standing committee on Religious Education. A 
comprehensive plan has been prepared for the coming year 
and will be thoroughly executed. 

The Young Women's Christian Association is a constantly 
increasing source of strength and inspiration to the young 
women who want to make the most of their college life. At 
the regular meetings there is profitable discussion of devotional 
topics. Moreover, the members of this organization may enjoy 
the privileges of the widely known Students' Conference at 
Montreat, W. G., each June. A Student Volunteer Band was 
organized in 1922 and has grown in number and power. 

Literary Societies 

There are two College Literary Societies: the Alethian and 
Hesperian. These organizations are very active and hold their 
meetings on Monday evening of each week. 

Clubs and Societies 

There are among the students various social clubs and also 
certain societies to promote different interests. Students in 
Expression maintain a Dramatic Club, which has social meet- 
ings and which presents plays from time to time; students in 
Science have organized during this year a Science Club; there 
is a debating Club among the men called the Demosthenian 
Debating Club, which meets every two weeks; and the Minis- 
terial and Missionary students have a joint club called the 
Fellowship, which seeks to promote the welfare of that group 
of students. 

Prizes and Awards 

Excellence in certain lines of college activity is recognized by 
awarding of prizes each year. The Faculty loving cup is 
awarded to the student who has the best general record in 
college, the Rotary cup to the best student, and the Kiwanis 

General Information 13 

cup to the best athlete. The Williams cup is presented to 
the society winning the annual inter-Society debate. 

A medal is given to the best orator each year and the Denny 
cup to the Society presenting the best programs throughout the 


College sports, such as football, basketball, baseball and tennis 
are encouraged. Good tennis and basketball courts are main- 
tained on the campus for both women and men, while League 
Park is available for intercollegiate sports. 

While athletics is generally cultivated by the student body 
and encouraged by the faculty, it has not become the chief 
factor of our student life. Those who make the ball teams are 
required to be bona fide students. We do not desire a man who 
comes preeminently for athletics. Students who play match 
games with other colleges must have a class standing of passing 
grade at the time of the contest. Not more than five days' 
absence during any semester is permitted any student for the 
purpose of sport. 

The Radiant 

But few publications of the kind excel The Radiant, issued 
quarterly by the students of the college. Through its columns 
opportunity is offered for genuine literary culture — thought 
takes symmetrical form and fittest mold. It is also a powerful 
means for the gendering and expression of a healthy and clean 
college spirit. Through it every student who has something to 
say and can worthily say it finds avenue for his contention or 

The staff is elected from the student body and alumni under 
the general direction of the Committee on Publications. 

The Pine Knot 

The Pine Knot, the College Annual, represents our best 
manhood and womanhood. It represents also the business 
energy, civic pride, and hearty liberality that has placed 
Wilson among the best towns and cities of our Southland. With- 

14 Atlantic Christian College 

out the generous support of the business men of Wilson this 
splendid publication could not be made. Without the hearty 
cooperation of our students and friends it could not exist. 

With becoming pride, therefore, we present it as the pledge 
of our common interest. 

The Bulletin 

Through this publication the college makes announcements 

promptly, and prints news of general interest for its numerous 

friends, thus bringing the institution into a close touch with 

its constituency. It is issued each November, February, May, 

and July. 


A good working library has become an indispensable part of 

the equipment. We have installed a library of about three 

thousand volumes of well selected books, which have been 

carefully catalogued and indexed. In connection with the 

library is a reading room supplied with the leading magazines 

and serials, which students can use when they have spare 

moments. This room will provide a quiet place for local pupils 

to study during all vacant periods. The librarian will be in 

constant attendance during open hours. 


The Biology Laboratory is located on the first floor of the 
main building and is equipped to meet every need arising in 
both elementary and advanced wo'rk. The equipment consists 
of simple and compound microscopes, and other apparatus for 
general Biology, Anatomy, Embryology, etc. 

The Chemistry laboratory occupies a large well-lighted room 
on the first floor of the Boys' Dormitory. The equipment in- 
cludes demonstration and individual apparatus for work in 
General Inorganic Chemistry, Qualitative and Quantitative 
Analysis, and Organic Chemistry. 

Modern apparatus has recently been materially increased 
in both these laboratories and they now offer admirable facilities 
to pre-medical students and students majoring in either Chem- 
istry or Biology. 

General Information 15 

A laboratory for General Physics will be installed in tbe 
summer of 1923. 

Reseryation of Rooms 

The rooms previously occupied are reserved for former stu- 
dents until July the 1st. A deposit of five dollars is required 
for the reservation of the room after that date. This will be 
credited on first quarter's expenses, or, if notice is given in 
writing three weeks before the opening of the school that the 
student cannot attend, the money will be refunded. Beginning 
July the 1st room assignments will be made to new students 
in the order in which their applications have been received. 
]STo room can be claimed unless the deposit has been made. 

"What Boarding Pupils and Teachers are Required to Furnish 

One pair of blankets or comforts, quilts, sheets, white bed- 
spreads, one pillow, two pillow-cases, towels and table napkins, 
soap, laundry bags, comb and brush, and a pair of overshoes. 
Each young lady is required to have in addition both a rain- 
coat and an umbrella. All articles, including trunks and 
valises, should be marked distinctly with the owner's name. 
Each student should bring knife, fork and spoon, as table cut- 
lery cannot be sent to rooms. All beds in Boys' Dormitory are 
single, while there are in Girls' Dormitory both single and 
double beds. An effort will be made to meet wishes of students 
in supplying either single or double beds. 

Disciplinary Policy 

We advise those who desire to make their rooms cozy and 
attractive to bring rugs, sofa pillows and pictures. 

It is the aim of the institution to have members of the 
faculty to reside in the buildings with the students. This affords 
the best possible opportunity for that personal contact and 
care for which the institution stands. The splendid opportu- 
nities now offered by our graded schools are preparing pupils 
for college at too immature an age for them to be out from 
under all restraining influence. Following is attached a list of 
regulations which all teachers, patrons and students are re- 
quested to note. 

16 Atlantic Christian College 



All students when arriving at the college should report at 
once at the college office and matriculate, and be assigned to 
specific rooms and classes. Failure to do so will cause needless 
loss of time and expense. 

Matriculation obligates all pupils to conduct themselves with 
propriety on all occasions, and to conform to all rules that 
may be made for their government. 

A fee of ten ($10) dollars is charged all full-time literary 
students for matriculation, and is due and payable in full at the 
time the student is assigned to classes. This fee may be in- 
creased to $15 if matriculation is deferred beyond the time 
set apart especially for this work by the college. 

Students are required to keep their own rooms in order, 
and are held responsible for any damage to furniture or 

Meals will be sent to the rooms in case of sickness only, 
and then by order of the matron of the dormitory. 

Students residing in the dormitories will not leave the campus 
at any time without the knowledge and consent of the dean 
of men or dean of women. 

Other necessary regulations will be made by the faculty. 

Ohapel and Sunday Services 

All students will be required to attend chapel exercises daily 
and Sunday School and public worship once on Sunday. Pupils 
are permitted, however, to attend the church of their choice, 
or that with which they or their parents are affiliated. 


All communications concerning the men must be made to 
the dean of men, and concerning the women to the dean of 

General Information 17 

women, and not sent through the students. This arrange- 
ment avoids many unpleasant misunderstandings. 

Parents and guardians should mail direct to the President

Parents will receive timely notice in case of serious illness. 
Please inquire of the dean of men or the dean of women before 
taking action in case of sickness. 


Visitors are always welcome at the college. Rooms are 
equipped in each dormitory for their entertainment. A nom- 
inal charge of 35 cents per meal is made to cover cost of material

Day Pupils 

Students residing in "Wilson, while on the campus, are subject 
to the same regulations as hoarding students. 


Opportunity is offered a number of students to earn their 
board. The work does not take time from recitation, and 
interferes very little with study hours. Twenty hours per week 
in sweeping, washing dishes, waiting on table or firing fur- 
naces is 1 exchanged for board. Preference is given to those who 
could not otherwise obtain an education. 

Ministerial students and those preparing to be missionaries 
are granted their literary tuition by an action of the Board 
of Trustees in November, 1920. If a change is made in life plan, 
these students are expected to repay tuition so granted. This 
regulation applies only to work of college grade. 

Children of ministers in active service are charged only one- 
half the literary tuition. 

Orpah Hackney Fund 

By bequest of Mrs. Orpah Hackney we are enabled to make 
concessions in room rent to a limited number of students pre- 
paring for the ministry.

School of Music 

Ivr May Smith, Director 

The aim of the School of Music of Atlantic Christian Col- 
lege is broad and far-reaching. It wishes to create in its stu- 
dents a desire for knowledge of the highest possible standard; 
to develop such desire in the right direction, surrounding its 
pupils with musical atmosphere just as far as it is possible 
to do so; to educate its pupils on broad lines and get the best 
results obtainable in the shortest possible time. 

It is essential for students of the School of Music to receive 
training in the Liberal Arts School, that they may have suffi- 
cient knowledge and understanding to become thorough and 
capable students of both the science and appreciation of the art. 

The school is well equipped throughout with splendid pianos. 
The practice rooms are furnished with upright pianos In good 
tune and repair. The studios are large, comfortable and at- 
tractive for teaching. The Auditorium, where all recitals are 
given, contains a concert grand piano and an upright piano. 


The School of Music offers thorough and concise courses in 
Piano, Voice, and Violin, along with such courses as are indis- 
pensable to the educated musician of today: General Theory, 
Harmony, Counterpoint, Composition, Musical Form, Appre- 
ciation of Music, Sight-singing, Philosophy of Music, Ensemble 
playing, Orchestration, and History of Music. 

The prescribed course of study in all departments places 
emphasis upon comprehensive study of the modern systems 
of technic and compositions of the Classic, Romantic, and 
Modern periods. The course of study for piano is systematically 
divided into six grades: two grades of Academic work and

four years of Collegiate work, offering two distinct courses — 
the Teacher's Course and the Artist's Course. At the begin- 
ning of the Junior Collegiate year the work will be molded 
according to the pupil's intention. If he is fitting himself 
for teaching, he will receive special instruction along lines of 
pedagogy; or should he wish to become a concert pianist, par- 
ticular attention will be given to accumulating a repertoire of 
solos. A wide range of musical literature will be required 
along either course. The Leschetizky technic is taught. 

The School of Music is under the direct supervision of the

Students sufficiently advanced are required to play at the 
Student Recitals. All students of the School of Music are 
required to attend. This is one of the most important factors 
in the development of the pupil's talent, self-confidence and 
executive ability. The recitals are regularly attended by the 
faculty and students of the college and their friends. 


Ensemble playing is of inestimable value to the student 
who wishes to become a proficient sight-reader and accom- 
panist. The practice is for two pianos — four or eight hands. 
Self-control must be cultivated. The general musicianship of 
the student improves as the student becomes familiar with 
many of the standard masterpieces, for a wide range of litera- 
ture is studied. 


The work of this class is of utmost value to all students 
whether their specialty be Piano or Voice. The student is 
taught to recognize by ear and express in writing rhythms, 
intervals, melodies, chords, and chord progressions. The work 
is systematically graded from diatonic melodies with the sim- 
plest rhythmic combinations to compositions involving difficult 
problems of tone rhythm. It is required of Voice students and 
open to all students of the school. 

58 Atlantic Christian College 


The entire student body attends chapel, but only the best 
voices are chosen for the choir, which leads the singing for

Physical Education 

(For "Women) 

This department is organized to supply the opportunity for 
such physical work as experience has shown to be necessary 
to counteract the injurious effect of close application to mental 
work and to favor the attainment by the student body of a 
high state of physical efficiency. The director endeavors to in- 
terest each student in some form of exercise in which she can 
become proficient. Special exercises are assigned to correct 
deficiencies and good carriage is insisted upon. A thorough 
physical examination prefaces the work of each individual. 
Every boarding pupil is required to take physical training. 
Tennis and basketball are open to students in this department, 
the latter game strictly for recreation and not for competition. 
The basketball and tennis courts are kept in condition for out- 
door games. 

The High School 

General Information 

In order to provide for students who have already entered 
the high school department, and for students who have not the 
opportunity in their own communities of taking the last years 
of high school work, the high school will be maintained, offer- 
ing work covering the third and fourth years of high school. It 
is our purpose to make this work meet the demands of a 
thorough secondary school. The curriculum has been strength- 
ened and its work is fully accredited. A minimum of two years 
of high school work will be required of all students who enter 
and records of previous work must be presented at entrance by 
every student. Students whose preparation seems inadequate 
may be asked to withdraw. On completion of 16 units of high 
school work under the supervision of the high school faculty, 
a high school diploma will be granted. 

After the close of the scholastic year 1923-24, high school 
work will be discontinued. Enrollment for this year will be 
limited and those desiring to apply for entrance should com- 
municate with the college as soon as possible.
